Hess Allomi Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Save $6.93 (21%)
When much of Napa sees the summer fog, our Allomi Vineyard is often on the flip side, enjoying a bit of heat, which is just the thing for Cabernet Sauvignon. Pope Valley is less well known than some notable Napa locations but the combination of steady heat and well-drained clay loam soils allows fruit to ripen evenly, gaining welcomed complexity and layers of flavors. Full bodied, with classic Cabernet red fruit flavors set off by aromas and flavors of currant and blackberry, our Allomi Cabernet is noted for moderate, well-integrated tannins showing a round, plush mouthfeel. Distinct notes of vanilla and oak spice from aging in American oak add to the personality of the wine, surely one of our most popular Napa offerings.
Wine SpectatorSturdy and intense, with a tight core of licorice-scented blackberry, dusty earth, cedary oak and savory underbrush. This is sufficiently supple to drink or cellar short term. Drink now through 2028. 59,500 cases made.
